Celebration of Christ ~Day Five

He is Jesus.
The One and Only.
Transcendent over all else.
To know Him is to love Him.
To love Him is to long for Him.
To long for Him is to finally reach
soul hands into the One true thing
we need never get enough of.
Take all you want.
Take all you need.
Till soul is fed.
And spirit freed.
Till dust is dust.
And Face you see.
Jesus Christ.
He's all you need.

As I was reading Jesus, 90 days with the One and Only by Beth Moore this morning, I was brought to tears. This isn't the first time as I daily read this great devotional. As I was pondering about what I could blog about today for our Celebration of Christ, I was holding this book in my hand. Beth Moore is a great vessel and obedient servant for our Lord! She has a great way of taking words that you have read many times and bringing them visually into your heart. Day one takes you into the mind of heart of Mary... Can you imagine?! She asks the question, "What if you had been Mary, how do you think you might have responded to this pronouncement of His name, especially at this declaration of Mary's involvement in His birth?
WOW...I'm not sure what my reaction would be, stunned for sure!
So as we continue to celebrate Christ I encourage you to get into His word everyday and involve yourself in a biblical Bible study, devotional or book to increase your understanding of Christ and to draw yourself nearer to Him!
You can find Beth Moore's book here!

Wow. I love that. That really hits me where I needed it. Being so stressed out lately, I have tried to "give it all to Him", but I forgot about asking Him to fill me up and free my spirit also.

Thank you for this post.
